A delegation of universities from the Middle East recently visited the campus of CESINE University Center with the intention of exploring new forms of cooperation and strengthening ties for future international collaborations. A total of nine representatives from countries such as the Arab Emirates, Oman and Saudi Arabia, were received by CESINE’s Head of International Relations , Jorge Gutiérrez, and by the Academic Directors of the degrees and postgraduate courses taught at the University Center.

The universities represented in this visit at CESINE were the following: Sultan Qaboos University, Scientific College of Design, Middle East College, GEMS – Wellington Academy Silicon Oasis (WSO), Prince Sultan University, Princess Nourah University, King Saud University, Al Yamamah University and Al Faisal University.

During the day, the representatives of these universities were able to know the keys to CESINE’s success; its international offer of degrees and postgraduate courses, the professional profile of its professors, the close link with the business world, the modern facilities of its campus, as well as its practical methodology and its constant collaboration with renowned universities around the world.

And that is precisely one of its fundamental pillars, in the 25 years of CESINE’s history: its permanent commitment to internationalization, allowing its students to enjoy international periods at recognized universities. In addition, during this academic year, it has expanded its Department of Career Development and Internships so that its students can carry out internships in more than 15 countries at leading companies from different sectors.


The delegation from the Middle East was impressed by the high number of international students at CESINE, and they had the opportunity to talk with some of them. 

54% of students at CESINE campus in Santander come from outside the region of Cantabria, and  36% are competitive students coming mostly from Europe and Asia.

For concluding the visit, the delegation visited some of the main sights of Santander, such as the Magdalena Palace, the Botin Art Center, the town hall or the Cathedral.
